Valentine'sGood morning.
The past few years has seen the rise of SPACs, or special purpose acquisition companies.  These firms simply offer a way for companies to go public by merging with the SPAC shell corporation.  It’s a more efficient way of going public, and has been good for companies such as Virgin Galactic (SPCE) and DraftKings (DKNG).
Investors got overly enthusiastic about the space, however, driving the price of a shell company worth $10 to as high as $15 or $20 in some cases before prices started cratering in February.  Now, billionaire Bill Ackman, who launched a SPAC late last year, has announced a potential $40 billion deal to take Universal Music public.
The market hated the news, given the highly complicated nature of the deal, sending shares of the SPAC name well under their cash value, and likely scaring off a potential rebound in SPAC names for months to come.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Whenever there is an economic downturn people are not able to fulfill their desires.  So those desires get repressed and the more they are thwarted the stronger they become.  And desire is what will fuel the next 30 years of economic prosperity.  Can’t you feel it?  It is building.  The greatest economic boom of all time is brewing and today’s Professional Salespeople, Relationship-Marketers and Entrepreneurs will be the ones to take advantage of it.  NOW is the time to hone your skills and become a Pro at every aspect of professional selling.  INVEST THE TIME TO LEARN HOW TO SELL!

Riddle:  Who hired a blimp that said, “British Airways Can’t Get It Up” when they were having construction problems … Driven a tank through the streets of New York to get attention for the launch of Virgin Cola … Rappelled down the side of the Palms Casino in a Tux, and crossed the English Channel in a floating car?

I’m going to bet, you too are a fan of: (answer) Richard Branson.

If you are willing to use a tiny bit of creativity, and work your brand thru social media, you could find yourself getting the “free press and traffic” that would OTHERWISE COST YOU BIG!

“YOU are the brand, and YOU are the expert.  Not your product or company.”

YOU should be out there, working for you!

Keep tuned in, right here, ’cause I’m going to have some new training in the month of June that I’ll be letting you know about soon!  😉

Good morning. In spite of 7 percent inflation rates right now, consumers are continuing to spend.  While their overall confidence has dropped, the actual spending itself shows that the economy, largely dominated by such spending, is likely to continue moving higher this year. If inflation rates start to decline in the coming months, the market could be setting up for a solid return as the current fears abate.  Given the latest data showing that consumers continue to be interested in buying homes, automobiles, and appliances this year, even a small change higher in interest rates will unlikely derail the economy’s

Good morning. On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020.  Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index.  But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close. This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over.  With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a

Good morning. Markets had $3.3 trillion reasons to be volatile last week.  That was based on the notational value of options expiring on Friday.  That included $1.3 trillion for individual stock positions alone, the second-highest on record.  Traders repositioning those trades ahead of expiration last week may have contributed to the big selloff, which finally started reversing on Friday as Treasury yields started coming back down. Given the growth of options trading, this phenomenon of added volatility into options expiration weeks may continue for the foreseeable future.  While February’s contracts are far lower in value, the next big hump will

Today! January 23, 2021 “Creativity is an action, not a feeling.  Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”  –Seth Godin Power Thought That Raises Awareness Whenever we’re talking about personal transformation — whether it’s physical (lose weight), financial (get out of debt), mental (overcome anxiety), spiritual, relational (repair a broken relationship), etc. — what we’re really talking about is change.  And for most, that can be scary.  In fact, many people don’t even entertain the idea of change until the pain of not changing becomes unbearable. In other words, you have to be ready and willing

Today! January 22, 2021 Good morning. The trade war.  The pandemic.  The election.  All the big catalysts that can move markets up or down are now off the table.  So what’s next?  Until a new catalyst emerges, expect markets to drift. With markets in a long-term uptrend, the drift will likely be higher.  Individual names can still have some big news on corporate announcements and earnings reports.  And look for potential catalysts that could provide the market’s next big move, whether higher (stimulus) or lower (war, pandemic, today’s high valuations). Now here’s the rest of the news: A “Cash Panic”

Good morning. Fears of rising inflation are likely to peak this year.  That’s good news.  And with news that major spending bills would be broken up, the likelihood of further fiscal stimulus to drive inflation higher is also likely to help there. In other areas, however, the economy is showing signs of a slowdown.  Jobless claims have risen to a three-month high.  Home sales have slowed after a massive boom in the past 18 months.  And now, expectations are that the trans-Pacific cargo trade are now rising to a three month wait time on average.  With a longer wait time

Good morning. While the stock market has largely been focused on rising interest rates in the past few weeks, the start to earnings season this week has been subdued.  Many of the big banks have started to report numbers.  And banks should be faring well even with higher rates of inflation going on right now. However, bank earnings have overall been lacklustre, as many banks have reported trading losses that have offset the gains made from a big year for mergers and IPOs. If bank earnings aren’t enough to get the markets excited and moving higher, chances are we’re in
